MICHELIN LTX P245/65R17
I purchased new Michelin tires for my truck. My other vehicle had the same tires, and knowing Michelin's reputation I was happy with the purchase. At 40K miles the tires became noisy. I noticed that there was some cracking on the sidewall as well as between the treads. Both sets of tires have similar mileage and both have the same problem.
I was just in a tire shop with a flat repair and was shown just how deep the cracks were, and how unsafe they were. There is 5/32 of tread left and I now have the added expense of replacing 8 tires. Needless to say the next tires WILL NOT be Michelin!!
